Join us for an incredible 17-day Biblelands Cruise, an incredible trip on the beautiful Mediterranean Sea visiting four countries and scores of Biblical sites – all from your magnificent floating hotel–Royal Caribbean’s “Odyssey of the Seas”! [PLEASE NOTE: In the video above, the order in which we visit the ports is incorrect--our ship recently “changed course” and the corrected dates/ports are in the schedule below.]

HOSTS: Andy Woods and Bill Perkins

And along the way, Andy Woods and Bill Perkins will be your hosts, lecturing on our days at sea and teaching on land in Israel, Athens, Ephesus, Corinth, and Rome, making your Bible come alive like never before!

Plus, you can add Egyptian pyramids and a dinner cruise on the Nile as a pre-cruise extension and/or visit historic Florence, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and the mind-blowing water-filled streets of Venice as an incredible post-cruise option.

With Compass, we don’t send you to the Holy Land, we take you — every step of the way!

Our 25+ years of planning and escorting groups through the magnificent land of the Bible has given us in-depth knowledge and experience — critical in choosing the very best destinations, accommodations, schedules, and guides to make your trip to the Holy Land the best it can be. Join us on our Biblelands Cruise, and create memories to last a lifetime!

Biblelands Cruise — Explore God’s special place on earth, The Land of The Bible!

You’ve read about it, now it’s time to see it with your own eyes! And once you do, you’ll simply never be the same. Come with us and see your Bible change from black and white to full living color!

We use our own itineraries, hotel accommodations, schedules, sites, buses, and guides to make your trip to God’s special place on earth the best it can be.

We’ve designed a fantastic itinerary on a remarkable 17-day trip that includes 13 cruise days. You’ll experience up-close many of the forever-impacting Mediterranean ports you’ve read about in your Bible. When you add our stellar at-sea Bible studies, there’s not a better Holy-Land itinerary on any ship!

Optional Israel Overnight

After touring Galilee, rather then returning to the ship (You’ll save 3 hours of busing!), you can spend the night in Jerusalem and be ready for the next day in Jerusalem. We’ll overnight at the Dan Hotel in Jerusalem (old Hyatt Regency) with a great Jewish dinner and breakfast.

Optional Egyptian Pyramids!

If you have Egypt on your bucket list, you can depart your trip early to tour Cairo and the world-famous Egyptian Pyramids. We’ll walk the photogenic outside as well as have special passes to go inside the Gisa Pyramid and afterwards enjoy a dinner cruise on the Nile.  After two nights in Cairo in a five-star hotel, we’ll fly to Rome to begin the Biblelands Cruise.

Optional Venice, Florence & Pisa!

But there’s more! You also have the option of extending your trip a few extra days by adding two nights in Venice and two nights in Tuscany, visiting the Leaning Tower of Pisa and breathtaking Florence via Siena. If you’ve got the time and a few extra bucks, add this incredible extension!

Finally, the ship is Royal Caribbean’s stunning new “Odyssey of the Seas”… in a class by itself.
